School Reviews

This is a terrific school! My son is in 7th grade, and this is his first year at private school. The first comment he made about the school was that the teachers seem happy and he felt like the teachers really cared about the students. The class size is small, so the teachers really get to know your child personally. My son really likes how the students are allowed to pray for each other and talk about God (something that wasn't allowed in the public schools he attended).

My son just started his 9th-grade year at HCA. We are new to the area. This school has been a tremendous blessing to him. Not only is he receiving a great education, but he hears and discusses God's word during each class period. Lunch and learns are even hosted each month separately for the middle and high school boys and girls that focus on tough issues they face every day. This school is truly educating my child in a Christlike manner. My son also has some learning issues and they have been more than happy to honor accommodations prescribed for him. I highly recommend this school!

HCA has been an answered prayer for our daughter as we are starting our 2nd year at HCA. She wakes up excited to go to school. Her love of learning and participating in activities have blossomed since our move from public school to HCA. The staff has done an amazing job transitioning our daughter from public to private. The teachers are willing to accommodate any extra help that your child may need. The atmosphere is genuine. We are very happy we made the move. HCA is a fantastic school that provides outstanding academics and a great moral foundation for students. It really is like a family for the students and parents.

I have three children at this school and all three are happy there and getting an excellent education. Every teacher we have encountered cares about each child and does an amazing job of teaching not only the information the kids need but also critical thinking, good decision making and Christian values. This is our fourth year here and look forward to the next ten years.

HCA offers quality Christian education. Our children have thrived in every aspect of growth spiritually and academically. Very well rounded program. I would recommend anyone looking to secure their child's future this is where it begins. Christian education is our responsibility as parents. HCA parent 7 years and counting.

Great school and teachers! The teachers are caring and spend extra time helping students. I would not send my child back to the public school system after seeing the difference in my child.

We have just started our first year at HCA. It has already been a significant improvement over the local public school system. Our son is enjoying the new experience very much! The communication to the parents is also regular & timely!
